“No one knows exactly who wrote the Bible or when (except for the possible exception of some of the New Testament's epistles). As such, it is an inherently suspect work, with no sure way for us to determine the qualifications of its authors, the value of their assertions, or what unstated motives they may have had for writing.”

    All the more reason for reading it as a fun artifact of a forgotten time. Exactly the way we read the works attributed to “Homer”, and with far less literary content, to be honest.

    If we did not know that Ovid wrote “The Metamorposes” would that make the facts and the stories contained in it any less true?
